SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County received notification from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs that the County would be the recipient of $591,709 in Small Business Relief. These funds were authorized through the Special Legislative Session in early December, and made available to eligible counties, and the municipalities within those counties. Summit County is partnering with the towns of Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco and Silverthorne in the delivery of these funds. This program is targeted at those local businesses struggling with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and State mandated severe capacity restrictions. 5 Star certified businesses meeting the program category and eligibility criteria are able to participate in the program.
Eligible business categories include:
The program eligibility requirements were established by the State Legislature, and include:
The legislation creating the program sets forth tiered relief payment caps, based on the business receipts (sales or revenue) from 2019, in the following fashion. However, grant amounts cannot be determined until the total number of eligible applicant businesses is finalized.
Maximum payment amounts based on the legislation are:
• Receipts less than $500,000 = $3,500
• Receipts greater than $500,000 but less than $1 million = $5,000
• Receipts greater than $1 million but less than $2.5 million = $7,000
It is the goal of Summit County and our partner municipalities to move quickly to get this support to eligible businesses. The application and review process will occur within the town in which your business is located or with Summit County if your business is located in an unincorporated area such as Keystone, Copper or Wildernest. To speed the review and distribution of funds please verify your business location and apply to that local government. Applications are due February 7, 2021 at midnight.
The application can be accessed at: https://summitcountygrants.smapply.io/
